Joseph Ichiuji was born on Feb.14, 1919 in Salinas, CA. His father was a shoe repair owner and his mother a housewife. Ichiuji attended Pacific Grove High School and worked in a fish cannery for supplemental income.

He served in the 522nd A Battery from 1943-1946 as an artillery mechanic. Although he was drafted from the military in September 1941, Ichiuji's duties didn't begin until 1943 because the United States had classified all Japanese Americans as
4-C enemy aliens.

Ichiuji now lives in Rockville, Maryland. He is married with two children and three grandchildren.
